Miscellaneous:

New Jersey has the highest per capita income of the 50 states.  This can mean very high housing prices in certain areas.  Keep this in mind if you are relocating to New Jersey from another state.

Culturally, there are large Italian-American, African-American, and Jewish populations in New Jersey.

Anecdotally, as ones who have driven through and around New Jersey many times, beware the roads!  Traffic can be a nightmare, and expressway exits are not clearly marked.  This is important if you are moving to New Jersey and selecting a home any distance from your place of employment.
